London Internet Access Policy

The primary purpose of providing internet access at Fischer Hall is to allow faculty and students to access the Internet for research and studying purposes, to provide access to web-based email and to use messaging applications for communication.
 
The use of file sharing clients such as LimeWire, Kazaar or any other ‘BitTorrent’ based clients is not permitted. Anyone found to be using such software applications will have their internet access revoked.
 
Please be advised that wireless internet access is provided through a shared connection. Users are required to act with responsibility and consideration towards other users in the building. For example, please avoid downloading very large files such as movies and TV programs as this will adversely affect the wireless network experience of other students and faculty.
 
The London Program reserves the right to revoke network access to anyone found to be involved in criminal internet activity or excessive downloading that impacts the internet experience of other users. If your computer is found to have a virus and you do not take care of it, your access to the network will be blocked.
 

JANET Acceptable Use Policy

In addition to the above stated policy, Internet access is provided to Fischer Hall through an agreement with JANET which is a network dedicated to the needs of research and education in the U.K.
 
Students, faculty and staff who utilize internet access agree to Fischer Hall internet access policy and to JANET’s acceptable use policy. The policy can be found at the following link: https://community.ja.net/library/acceptable-use-policy

Printing via email in Fischer Hall

There is a fast and easy way to get a single copy of your printout without installing any drivers. If you just want one B/W duplexed copy of a PDFOffice file, or JPG try this:

  • Compose an email addressed to sp16print@gmail.com
  • Attach the document you want to print (This works for PDFs, Office docs and jpgs.)
  • Hit Send
  • After a few minutes you should get an email back from sp16print asking you to confirm your email address. Reply back with the info requested.
  • Wait a few minutes more and you should get second email saying your job is being processed.
  • Go to a printer and release it as normal. You can make copies at the printer when you pick it up.

Tip: This only works for printers in Fischer Hall but you should be able to use any email enabled device such as a smart phone or tablet.

Picking up your printing

Your printout is held in a queue until you visit one of the printers in Fischer Hall and release it. There is a one-time registration process after which you will just need to scan your door card/sticker to retrieve your printing:

  • Scan your door card or sticker on the reader at the front of the printer. It will say 'unknown card' and ask you to register it.
  • Type in your netid and password. (The shift key will stick so press it again when doing capitals.)
  • You will get a confirmation that the card is now assigned to your netid.
  • Scan your card again and it will show you the print jobs that you can now print or cancel.

About the EduRoam Consortium

The University of Notre Dame is part of the Eduroam consortium. 
 
This service enables members of the Notre Dame community who visit another institution that uses eduroam to automatically use Wi-Fi at that location based on their ND credentials. Similarly, visitors from institutions that participate in eduroam can use guest wireless access at Notre Dame’s buildings in London using their home institution account information.
 
Many London-based universities are part of the eduroam consortium, so this can open up a number of free Wi-Fi locations for you.
 
Eduroam maintains a list of who is currently part of this consortium which you may find useful in travel planning.
 
The 'eduroam companion’ app is also available for iOS and Android. This app helps users to locate their nearest eduroam point by visualizing the central database of eduroam-enabled facilities on a map and provides information that the user will need in order to connect to the service. The iOS version can be downloaded free from iTunes. The Android version is now available from a number of sources, including the Google Play Store. You can select eduroam from the available Wi-Fi choices on your device. When prompted for your Net ID, be sure to enter it as netid@nd.edu or your eduroam profile will not work at other institutions.
 
Additionally, the connect.nd.edu utility was updated on June 11, 2012 to add the configuration for eduroam. If you've run the utility previously, you'll need to do so again to ensure the latest is applied to your device. 
 
Visit the Eduroam website for additional information.
